Montana Instruments Company Introduction
Company Background The company founder, Luke Mauritsen, started the Cryostation product development in 2008. Luke’s background is primarily in cryogenic optical applications for military and space applications. His experiences led him to create a solution that would eliminate the frustrations he found in the lab.
Company Mission • To develop innovative, high performance cryogenic research systems • To simplify cryogenic laboratory instruments so the researcher to concentrate on research, not equipment operation • To provide reliable cryogenic “cores”
Benefits / Features • Unparalleled sample stability which enables new experiments • 5nm peak to peak vibration typical • 10mK peak to peak temp variation • Easy sample access which makes setup and modification much simpler • Automated control which allows the user to concentrate on the real research
Applications • Materials Research • Microscopy, AFM, SNOM • Spectroscopy – Raman, Mossbauer, FT-IR • Magnetic Studies – MOKE, Spintronics • X-Ray and Neutron Scattering Studies • Pressure Cells • …
Key Technologies • Cold finger linkage is 15x more conductive than OFHC copper • Unique vibration isolation architecture • New thermal damping compound which acts like a thermal capacitor • Complete automation with cool down sequence, built in calibrations and active thermal damping using closed loop control
In closing… • We’re excited about the future! • We’d love to learn more about your applications www.montanainstruments.com (406) 551-2796
